We had an incredible stay in Samoens with Liz and Andy! Despite the large size of our group, everything went incredibly smoothly. The chalet was spacious and cozy with enough space for everyone to relax comfortably. The food and hospitality were superb throughout. We are looking forward to returning next year!

A perfect chalet
What a fantastic place Chalet Bobeau is. From the moment we got there we were treated amazingly by Liz and her team. The food is fantastic and the chalet very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. We were a party of 12 and without exception everyone had an amazing time. Really close to the lift with easy access to the Flaine skiing area.
I would love to go back to the chalet in the summer to see what this area has to offer. Thank you and hopefully see you again soon!

Amazing Group Stay at Chalet Bobeau!
Booked the chalet for a large group (22) of friends and family and couldn't have picked better! It was my first time staying in a chalet - from the moment of booking Liz was helpful and friendly and made the experience so easy and smooth. The chalet itself was perfect - warm and cozy in the main living/dining area with it's open wood fire which made for a very sociable and relaxed atmosphere. Great amenities after a day of skiing - playing in the games room or relaxing in the hot tub. Bedrooms all had comfy mattresses and bedding. Everything was kept so clean (hard to do with 22 people around!). The food was fabulous and catered to everyones dietary needs with no fuss. Liz, Andy, Brent, Selena were amazing chalet hosts. The chalet was very handy to the main ski gondola, Grand Massif Express, less than a 5 min walk, passing the ski hire shop on the way which was ideal. We loved our time at Chalet Bobeau and would 100% recommend.

Luxury stay with great hosts
We stayed for a week in January 2023 and had an amazing time, the chalet was very authentic with wood finishings, log fires and a bar. The rooms were very cozy with comfy beds and under floor heating. Liz and Andy were amazing hosts and the breakfast and dinner provided each day was better than the days we went out to restaurants! This was our first time staying in a chalet skiing and it’s definitely the way to go from now. Samoens itself is a great resort with lovely slopes, we were lucky with the snow and weather we had too. Couldn’t recommend more to anyone thinking of booking! Thank you Liz and Andy😊

Superb chalet for large ski group
From the minute I found and booked this chalet I knew we had found a good one - Liz 's pre-holiday information was brilliant! We were a large party of 23 with just 2 children so they had their work cut out when it came to breakfast and evening meals but they made everything run like clockwork. Great selection at breakfast (always a hot option) and the dinners were all delicious and unanimously enjoyed by everyone, even the fussy teenagers! The rooms and bedrooms are lovely as are the bathrooms, some a little tighter than others but that is expected with such a large salary and everywhere was really clean. There was lots of space to park our cars. Liz & Andy have this off to a fine art - they are experienced hosts who know how to make the chalet experience wonderful for their guests and we could not be more grateful. The advice on ski runs, mountain bikes and booking the white water rafting were all added bonuses. We really hope to return one day!

We have just returned from a fabulous week skiing, staying at this amazing chalet. We are a large group of 26 friends and family. The chalet is stunning, clean and modern and accommodated our large group of adults and children comfortably. Great facilities to keep every age entertained, from the hot tub, bar, and games room with pool table.
Andy & Liz are amazing hosts, friendly, informative - nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing and we felt thoroughly spoilt and pampered after a hard days skiing, coming back to a beautiful afternoon cake and then a stunning 3 course meal and cheese board (we were rolling down the slopes by the end!) Having been on previous catered ski-holidays this was definitely the best! We would highly recommend this chalet to anyone, absolutely fabulous! It’s also in walking distance to the pretty little village of Samoens and the ski lifts. The skiing is great for beginners through to experienced skiers and the ski school we used were also brilliant for all abilities - Zig Zag Ski School.
Thanks again Andy & Liz for making our holiday so amazing and one to remember - we will definitely be back!

We’ve just returned from a fabulous holiday at Chalet Bobeau. The accommodation was perfect plus 😀. Liz and Andy were extremely helpful - thank you!
Samoëns is a delightful pretty village and the chalet is situated in a perfect location for a break from the busy city life yet near enough to join the activities when you want.
Highly recommended on all fronts 😊

Super Chalet à Samoëns
Nous avons réservé le chalet Bobeau pour un anniversaire "Surprise" entre amis, 20 adultes et enfants , la fête était simplement GENIALE , et la semaine INOUBLIABLE.
Le chalet est très agréable et spacieux, les enfants ont adoré l'espace billard et baby foot et bien sur le jacuzzi, les adultes ont préféré la grande terrasse face aux montagnes pour profiter des apéros . Immense salle à manger, grande cuisine, tout est fonctionnel et très bien équipé, il ne manque rien.
Les chambres sont très cosy toute avec salle de bains privatives. La literie est confortable et la propreté irréprochable.
L'emplacement du chalet est idéal tout peut se faire à pied à moins de 5 mn du village pour le marché, les restaurants, 2 mn du lac avec sa base de loisirs (un vrai plus pour les enfants) et pour les hommes plus sportifs à 2 mn des remontées mécaniques pour le VTT descente.
Alors un très grand merci à Liz et Andy, des hôtes supers, très accueillants et disponibles.
Nous avons passé des vacances de rêve et nous reviendrons.

Our week was so good staying at chez bobeau. The team managed to feed all 26 of us bang on time with great food, vegetarian and gluten free options. I’m missing their food and hospitality already. Everyone in our group said how great our stay with them was. Thanks again
